Boys, ranging in age from 6 to 14, can be considered for placement in the Boys Ranch Program. Boys will be considered without regard to race, religion or socioeconomic status. Upon referral by a school counselor, psychologist, pastor, parent or legal guardian, Ranch administration will require the parent or placing agent to submit a completed application for the child. If the boy appears to be a good candidate for our program, an interview and pre-placement visit will be arranged. The pre-placement visit is a weekend visit to determine if the the Ranch can meet the needs of the child.
If it is determined that the boy is a good candidate for placement with Ben Richey Boys Ranch the second part of the application process will take place. This includes providing current dental and physical exams, immunization records, social security and birth records and other required documents.
